Horseshoe Park Pony Rides offers a variety of interactive programs suitable for schools, individuals with special needs, aged care residents, disability service users, and individuals with social and emotional difficulties. From education to rehabilitation, each program is tailored to your specific needs.
Our school program can be adapted to your school's educational model and can be customised to be in line with current themes or lessons. Through the use of real life demonstrations with our ponies and an interactive hands on approach, our school program is not only informative, but is engaging, fun, and entertaining for both students and teachers!
We also offer programs that focus on building skills and providing positive experiences through the use of equine facilitated activities. We work with children and adults who have a variety of special needs relating to Cerebral Palsy, Down's Syndrome, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, stroke recovery, learning and intellectual disabilities, and social and emotional difficulties.
Equine facilitated activities have a wealth of benefits ranging from developing physical abilities like balance and muscle control, improving cognitive abilities like concentration and short-term memory, building on social interaction skills and behaviour management, and enhancing confidence, self-esteem, and positive wellbeing.
We cater for individuals and groups and offer single and ongoing sessions.

A great place for young riders to start out. I took my girls here when they were 5 and 4 respectively, they had a wonderful time...Kasey (Parent)
Katy shows us techniques used to connect with her ponies, through a hands on approach. Witnessing these connections with individuals has been a true delight...Lara (Support Worker, R.E.D Inc.)
Katy's special touch brings forth lovely qualities from her ponies... I would recommend Pony Pals for any event to celebrate with those who need a more gentle experience...Megan (Support Worker, R.E.D Inc.)
